This year's edition of the Paris show will see the VW Group's Skoda brand unveiling its first-ever electric-powered vehicle called the Octavia Green E Line. Skoda says it is planning to create a special test fleet of Octavias Green E Line in 2011 with the goal of obtaining additional information relevant to the further development of the electric drive.

The concept model is based on the Octavia Combi and is powered by an electric motor delivering a constant power of 80-hp with a maximum output of 114-hp. Peak torque of 270Nm is available from the start. The pure-electric Octavia accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 12 seconds, with a maximum limited speed of 135 km/h.

Electricity for the drive motor is supplied by a 26.5 kWh battery made up of 180 lithium-ion cells. It weighs around 315 kg and is located in the middle to rear of the undercarriage, extending partly into the luggage compartment. Skoda claims the battery has little impact on the volume of the passenger and luggage compartments.

At full capacity, the battery is said to offer a driving range of about 140 kilometers. The concept model at the Paris show will be finished in a Pearl-white exterior color and features a glossy black roof with integrated energy-generating photovoltaic panels.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
